Part of the Working Internationally Regional Project led by ICOM UK in partnership with the National Museum Directors’ Council, the Association of Independent Museums, the British Council and Heritage Without Borders, this one-day workshop is for regional and local museums and galleries who are in the beginning stages of international work or interested in finding out more about it.
The aim of the workshop is to enhance the confidence and skills of delegates to develop international work and provide information and practical advice on how to do so. Relevant case-studies will be presented alongside facilitated group work, and delegates will have an opportunity to network with other colleagues from the region.
The four main workshop sessions will include:
- Case-studies on international work, exploring working with limited resources as well as developing more ambitious projects and partnerships.
- Overview on funding options for international work.
- Facilitated group session to develop ideas for international work, building on existing projects or ideas.
- Practical how-to session looking at up to three specific areas of international work.
Key benefits for delegates will be:
- Access to practical advice and support for developing international work.
- Time to explore the benefits and impact of international work and to develop advocacy inside and outside your organisation.
- Opportunities to ask questions and be part of the discussion on international work in the museum sector.
- Networking with speakers and colleagues.
The full programme of speakers will be announced shortly.
The Working Internationally Regional Project is supported by public funds from Arts Council England’s Renaissance Strategic Support Fund.
The fee for this one-day workshop is £35 with a discounted fee of £25 for museums and galleries with less than 20,000 visitors p.a. The fee includes morning and afternoon refreshments, lunch, and a delegate pack.
